First Graders Love Kevin Henkes

What a great day we had on Friday celebrating one of our favorite authors - Kevin Henkes! We started off our day making purple plastic purses with some nifty ties for the boys. We also made some movie star glasses! They all turned out great. Then we went and had cheesy snacks while we watched a Kevin Henkes video of three of his books. Next we did all kinds of fun worksheets about his books. Our last station was bingo. We had a blast finding different answers on our bingo boards about his books and his life. We could have played forever. For lunch we came back to our room and had cheesy pizza and chips - our favorite. For our afternoon we had a great performance of Reader's Theatre for all our parents and one set of kindergarteners. The kids did a great job and the performance went off perfectly. Thank you to all the parents who have supported us through this 5 week unit of study. The kids have learned so much. Here are some highlights from our day.
